Wailes, Linda Casey born April 10, 1942 went home to be with the Lord on May 27, 2018. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother to her family that she loved and was so proud of. Linda is survived by her husband and best friend Robert Wailes, two sons, Dean Isdell (Kristen) and Casey Isdell (Carol), four grandchildren, Karrly and Gracie Isdell; Jacob Isdell and Kitie Isdell Pack (Jeremy), and one great grandson, Kade LeBerte. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Lottie Casey Crane and Bud Casey, her brother, Wayne Casey and sister Jane Casey McLaughlin. Linda found joy in sharing her life with others. Everyone was welcomed into her circle of family and friends with open arms and a smile that would put anyone at ease. She was a follower of Jesus Christ and was a member of Valley View Baptist Church in Leeds. She helped start many ministries that reached out into the community and taught teen girls Sunday School class for years. Later in life she moved home to Odenville and continued her ministry of sharing at Bethel Baptist Church teaching the Senior Women’s Class. She affectionately called this group of ladies her “little women.” She loved and adored each one, and they loved her and adored her in return. Her life with family and friends almost always centered around food. She was an outstanding cook and loved to share a meal with anyone that could find their way to her home on a Sunday afternoon or holiday. It was a standing invitation to Sunday dinner each week for family and friends and everyone knew where to go for the best and most delicious food on any given holiday. Christmas and Thanksgiving were her favorites. She fed everyone, from those celebrating new lives together, to those mourning the loss of a loved one, to the teachers at school, to her fellow workers at United Chair, and many many more. She was a tireless worker at both her chosen place of employment and at home and in her community. She worked at United Chair for 40 years and was there when they closed the doors for the last time. Retirement was just an opportunity for her to do even more for her church and her family. She loved her grandkids and their friends, all of whom affectionately called her Nana. She became Nana to all regardless of kinship. Her home was always open for business and everyone loved Nana. She also loved to travel and she and her husband, best friend and favorite travel companion, Bob, travelled the world visiting six continents and too many countries to name. She loved experiencing the different cultures and ways of life in other countries, but she was always quick to point out that visiting and experiencing other countries gave her even a greater appreciation for America and she was blessed to be living in Alabama. Linda was very proud of her family and would share stories about her sons and grandchildren with everyone. A family get together for her was like Christmas morning to a kid. She loved to sit with distant relatives and hear about their families and share with them stories about hers. She will be missed by all that knew her and mourned by those that loved her, but her faith in Jesus and the belief that we will all gather again in heaven eases the pain of losing such a wonderful woman. Rest in peace Nana until we all meet again. We love you! Funeral services will be held at Kilgroe Funeral Home on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 12 Noon with burial to follow at Jefferson Memorial Gardens in Trussville. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 beginning at 11:00AM. Kilgroe Funeral Home in Leeds to direct services. Visit us online at www.kilgroefuneralhome.com
